Garments Fit Well Into the Present Fashion Picture and the Shops Are Busy. The present Influence of Russian styles in all types of dress in France Is due to Russian refugees, according to a Paris fashion writer In the New York Tribune. Princesses and grand duchesses, driven from their own coun try, their lands confiscated, their money and Jewels gone, have turned to the occupation which deals with the subject nearest a woman's heart and the one which she naturally knows most about—the designing, making and selling of clothes. Both sympathetically and artistically these Russian wares have made a great Impression In Paris, and a de cided Russian vogue prevails, par ticularly In blouses and In sweaters. These garments fit very well Into the present fashion picture because even as far back as August there was this tendency toward both the Russian and Polish types In coats and blouses. Jenny, Renee and Patou all showed models distinctly Slavic In feeling. Within the last month the Inspiration has been definitely named Russian. The various ouvrolrs, or workshops, operated In Paris for the benefit of Russian workers, are very busily en gaged In executing private orders on blouses of Russian style. Paris manu mo Beige Silk Crepe Frock, Embroidered in Brown, Showing New Girdle Ar rangement. facturers, catering In a large way to the fashion markets of the world, have taken up the Idea, and beautiful new models for export trade are being pre pared In the Russian modes. One of the charming things about the Russian blouse Is that it Is youth ful In style and yet full of dignity. It is becoming to almost every type of figure. . With Its low waistline belt, Its big sleeves and Its effective em broideries the Russian blouse fits ex actly Into the fashion picture of to day. , FOR YOUR NEW TUNIC BLOUSE Put Hand Embroidery Only Around Center of the Sleeve and on the 8ash. If yon want to make a stunning new tunic blouse, put your hand embroid ery now in two places only: Aronnd the center of the kimono sleeve, and on the sash. Leave the neckline and the body of the blouse absolutely plain, and let the embroidery on sleeve and sash be as splendid as you can make It. The kimono sleeve should extend be low the embroidery almost to the wrist, so that it drapes and flops about the arm, lifted or lowered—this is fash Ion's fancy Just now. A stunning tunic blouse Is of black satin meteor with broad bands of em broidery—perhaps nine inches wide— around the center of the sleeve and on the ends of the wide snsh 'which Is looped over once and falls with heav ily fringed ends at one hip. The em broidery Is done with darning stitch Unes of pale gray and white silk floss and silver threads. Here and there are triangular appliques of gray duvetyn, surrounded with lines of black and white silk floss and silver thread. An other blouse, of black satin, has em broidery of gold thread, gray, magenta and olive green floss. Make a bateau neckline—If you can stand the severe style—and open the blouse at the shoulder, with an ar rangement of Invisible snap-fasteners. Or have a rounded neckline with a six Inch slash down the front. Run a very tiny casing around the neckline anil draw it up with a cord or velvet rib bon, tying the ribbon at the top of the THE "KIKI" SCARF AND CAP One of the latest novelties in femi nine toggery Is the "Kiki" scarf and cap outfit. Tomato red duvetyn is em. ployed, embroidered attractively. The sets are made In the most briliant col. ors. HANDWORK IS IN HIGH FAVOR Woman Skillful With Needle May Have Beautiful Clothes at Very Moderate Outlay. Any sort of handwork Is In high favor this season, and this should mean a lot to the woman who makes her own clothes. Ready-to-wear garments that are largely handmade are decidedly expensive, but when a woman Is sufficiently skillful with her needle to do her own embroidering, hemstitching, etc., she may have really beautiful clothes at a very moderate outlay. There Is nothing radically different In spring styles from those of the season Just ending. The straight sil houette holds good, the low waistline Is very much approved, and ttife un even hem continues to be a feature. There are many novel and Interesting sleeves and some new neck treatments, but on the whole there Is compara tively little change. Certainly, how ever, emphasis Is laid on increased skirt length. DRESS TO MATCH THE COAT Suit Houses Have Concentrated on Producing Attractive Styles in Three-Piece Garments. Taking a leaf out of the book of the dress manufacturers, the suit houses have concentrated their efforts on producing attractive styles In three piece garments. They substitute, how ever, the coat or Jacket for the cape. Underneath tills outside garment there is provided a dress of the same ma terial, which follows a tailored design. According to the manufacturers, this style Is Just getting into Its swing and will see Its best season next fall, though quite a few numbers have al ready appeared and there will be plenty for the late spring.

They come In shades that blend es pecially well with the new tweeds and are a delightful feminine touch on a man-tailored suit. slash, which is piped to match the nar row casing of the neckline. Hat and DreM In Crepe de Chine. The soft, gracefully falling dresses of silk which are so much the vogue are prettiest when they are made of crepe de chine. Sometimes It is a good plan to weight portions of the dress where It droops and where the drooping falls Into points. This spe cial weave of silk naturally takes beautiful and artistic folds. It Is meant to be draped. For linings this Is an excellent material, as its softness adapts Itself to the outer garment so well. Now crepe de chine Is being used for hats. Many crepe dresses have the hat to match. In New York some shops sell dress and hat toi match all ready-made. To Make a Ribbon Rom. To make a medium-sized rose re quires two yards of satin ribbon two Inches wide. Taffeta or satin may be used. There are several different methods of making the center of these roses. A simple center may be made from a piece of the ribbon, four Inches long. Fold this in half. Sew the selvages together along one side. Tum and fill with cotton around which has been wound the end of a 6-lnch piece of frame wire. A little rose-scented sachet powder may be sprinkled on this cotton to add perfume to the blossom. Sewing Hint. When making several pairs of pll tow-sllps with lace edging measure off the entire amount of lace required and stitch it onto the material In one piece, then cut off the pillow-slips and sew up on the machine. DAIRY POINTS HOUSE FOR SMALL DAIRYMAN Convenient, Sanitary and Inexpensive It 8hould Be Well Built and Located. (Prepared by the United States Department of Agriculture.) The dairy house that will fulfill sanitary requirements, and at the same time be practical and inexpensive, has been planned by the United States De partment of Agriculture. Many re quests are received for Information concerning the construction and ar rangement of such buildings. To meet this demand the department has drawn up plans for dairy houses of various sizes which can be constructed economically. Copies of the plans will be sent free to those applying for them. For a person who is striving to Im prove the quality of his products a practical, Inexpensive type of dairy house, such as that planned by the department, Is an absolute necessity. Ïlk that Is poured or strained In the rn, or allowed to stand there, Is liable to be contaminated by bacteria and to absorb stable odors. As soon as the cow's milk Is drawn It should be carried to the dairy house, to be cooled immediately to 50 degrees F. or lower. An up-to-date sanitary dairy house Is provided with all the facilities for cooling milk In the most economi cal manner. For convenience the dairy house should be near the barn, yet so far from It that no barn odors can be detected in the house, and should be on well-drained land that slopes from the house. The principal purpose In building a dairy house is to provide a place where dairy products may be handled apart from anything else. To carry out this Idea It Is necessary to divide the Interior of the building so that the utensils do not have to be washed In ■■■ ;;•••>/ r Interior of Model Dairy in Which Electricity Is Used. the same room where the milk is handled. The idea of absolute clean liness must always be kept In mind; and for this reason there should be no unnecessary ledges or rough sur faces on which dirt may lodge. Venti lators are necessary to keep the air in the milk room fresh and free from all odors, and to carry steam away from the wash room. Windows are of great importance, as they admit sun light and fresh air, and facilitate work. In summer the doors and windows should be screened to exclude flies and other Insects. It Is necessary that there be a plenti ful supply of cold, running water at the dairy house. If It Is not possible to have a regular water system, water may be piped from an elevated tank by an engine, wind mill, hand pump, or hydraulic ram. The dairyman can ill afford to spend his time carrying water In a pail to cool milk and wash utensils. For the proper sterilization of uten sils an abundance of steam or hot water Is needed. A pall or can may appear to be clean and still may con tain numerous bacteria which will hasten the souring of milk, cause bad flavor In butter and cheese, or spread contagion. After the utensils are thoroughly ciean they should be either scalded with boiling water or steamed. The dairy house should be so built as to economize labor to the greatest ex tent. To do this the building must be arranged to avoid unnecessary steps. The equipment of the dairy house consists of a 1% to 2 horsepower vertical boiler which supplies steam to the sink and to the steam Jet In the drain board, a galvanlzed-lron wash sink, a can rack, a Babcock tester, a concrete cooling tank, a milk cooler, and milk scales. A separator may also be located In the milk room. De tails of the construction and arrange ment of this and other dairy houses may be had by writing to the bureau of animal industry, United States De partment of Agriculture, Washington, D. c. Most Profitable Cow. A dairy cow which produces 300 pounds of butter fat In one year makes three times as much profit as one which produces 150 pounds. Adds to Value of Stock. Testing and grading up the dairy herd not only Increases production but adds materially to the value of dairy stock. Cows Freshen In Fall.

SIX HUNDRED THOUSAND OUT Men Are Espeoialiy Directed to Do All In Their Power to Protect the Property of the Employers and Observe Laws. Suspension of work by all union coal miners at midnight March 31 was or dered by officers of the United Mine Workers of America March 21, the call being the first ever Issued for both bituminous and anthracite workers to walk out simultaneously. Six hundred thousand men are directly affected by the order,' It was estimated officially. The suspension, the order provided, will continue until stopped by union officials. The order, which was sent to the 3,000 local unions, directed the miners to give the operators their fullest co operation In the protection of mine property and counseled against vio lence and violations of the law. In addition to affecting all union miners In the United States, the order also directed approximately 6,650 union men In western Canada to Join In the walkout, but did not apply to 14,000 miners In Nova Scotia. Never before In the history of the coal Industry has a suspension cr strike order called for cessation of work by all union miners In the United States. In the past, wage con tracts In the bituminous and anthra cite fields have not expired at the same time, but a complete tie-up In union fields was considered during the great anthracite strike In 1902. A sym pathetic strike by the bituminous min ers at that time was rejected by the union's convention, It being argued that the soft coal workers were bound by a contract. The Issuance of the call came with the recent strike vote of soft coal min ers not completely tabulated, but it was said officially that the work of the union's board of tellers had progressed to such a point as to show every field voting overwhelmingly In favor of a suspension. Indications were that nine tenths of the miners favored the walk out. The union's membership, excluding that In Nova Scotia not affected by the strike, is about 500,000 men. Of these, approximately 75,000 are In the anthracite districts of Pennsylvania, and the remainder scattered over the soft coal fields. Past suspensions In the anthracite fields, however, have practically closed all operations, lead ing to the official estimate that almost 600,000 men have been called out of the mines. The order.was addressed to "the of ficers and members of the United Mine Workers of America," and was signed by John L. Lewis, International presi dent ; Philip Murray, vice-president, and William Green, secretary-treas urer. GENERAL LABOR NEWS A cut of 35 cents an hour In the wages of carpenters, effective April 1, was announced by the Master Builders' association of St. Louis. About 3,200 men -are affected.
